Gunman dead and boy hostage ALIVE
after FBI agents storm bunker after
´fearing for imminent safety of Ethan´

Daily Mail [UK], by Laura Collins, Thomas Durante

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/4/2013 6:15:51 PM

FBI agents today stormed an underground bunker to rescue a five-year-old boy being held by an armed survivalist who died in the raid. Authorities were forced to act after growing concern for the suspect’s mental state, observing him with a gun and ultimately ´fearing the child was in imminent danger,´ they revealed this afternoon. The boy, known as Ethan, is believed to be in a fine condition. The gunman, 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, is deceased. FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Richardson said during a news conference that negotiations had broken down and Dykes had been seen holding a gun.

Shouldn´t that be "fearing imminent harm"?

Yes, it should be "harm" but the bottom line is, they got tired of waiting.

Did they have a camera in there? How did they observe him with a gun, I figured he already had a gun with him in the first place?

Win-win.

This good idea (busting in) was also a good idea last week.

Still....thank God.

"The gunman, 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, is deceased - although authorities have not confirmed yet whether he was killed by law enforcement officers or took his own life."

I´d like to know how Dykes died; by his own hand or by Federal agents?

"FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Richardson said during a news conference that negotiations had broken down and Dykes had been seen holding a gun."

What what Dykes actually doing with the gun? Was he pointing it at the boy, or merely holding it? Did he threaten to kill the boy? I´d like to know.

"Those actions forced the hand of FBI agents, who entered the bunker."

Well, that´s what they are telling us. Call me cynical, but I want to know if the Federal agents just got tired of waiting and used the claim that the negotiations were "deteriorating" as a convenient excuse to go barging in. I´m sure this little boy was quite traumatized by the whole thing.

I´m so glad this little boy is safe, but I don´t "trust" the Government, either.

Busting in was dangerous until law enforcement managed to get a camera in and determined what Gates was really up to. For all they knew he was ready to shoot the child if anyone tried getting in. It probably took most of this time to run the camera.

Why am I thinking we all lost on this? Countless examples show the FBI/ATF/LEOs way too often use the media to portray someone holding up on their property as evil bad guys when it´s really the government who are bad guys.

I´m glad the kid is OK. I´m not glad anyone got killed. Gunman? My ass.

Hello! This wasn´t just some anti government nut holed up on his property minding his own business. This was an evil maniac who kidnapped an innocent child and killed a bus driver on a packed school bus. Good grief! The FBI deserves a pat on the back for this rescue.

Sometimes the FBI does a good job. They seem to have done so this time.

The kidnapper and murderer was some kind of demented monster, holding that little boy hostage for a week. Someone needed to put him down, and someone did.

Let´s just be thankful that he didn´t surrender. He´d have been tied up in the courts for years, with a tax-payer funded defense attorney claiming he wasn´t competent enough to go to trial...

7, your ass, since that seems to be what you´re doing your reasoning with, needs to understand that the furry critter killed somebody, and then kidnapped a child and held the child at gunpoint in his end-of-the-world bunker. Please don´t sympathize with the jerk.

18: Yeah, it´s a win for everybody. Except for the little five year old boy, who was kidnapped and threatened and traumatized by that EVIL, self-pitying LOSER who held him at gunpoint in his LOSER survivalist bunker for a week. That kid is likely messed up for life, courtesy of this evil loser.

Children can be amazingly resilient. I hope this is the case with Ethan. I have not a shred of sympathy for the scum who kidnapped him. This man threatened a bus full of children, killed the driver who was trying to protect them and then kidnapped an innocent child. As far as I am concerned, he got off way too easy.

I have a 5 year old with autism. Probably lower-functioning than the boy, but similar enough that I have strong opinions.

This situation is my worst nightmare. My child doesn´t sleep. My child has tantrums that last hours. My child is not a typical child. Children who have autism and higher intelligence have anxiety like you would not believe.
Every once in a while a jackass gets on here and tries to suggest that autism is my fault. It´s not. Let´s just start with that.

These kids can be very very hard to raise, even though they are amazing and awesome. (http://www.disabilityscoop.com/2009/11/10/autism-moms-stress/6121/)

These kids are not typical kids. Typical grief counseling won´t work.

This family needs all of the support that we can give them. I hope to God that good therapists will step up to work with the family.

I´m glad they killed the perp. Matthew 18:10- these kids have special angels that are always before God. May God have mercy on His soul, but more importantly, may the world start to look out a little more for our disabled kids and the people who work with them, many of whom we consider to be angels from Heaven.

The man was a homicidal freak, and the FBI achieved a wonderful result after trying all the conventional approaches. I´m not religious generally but I do remember to thank God for outcomes like this one - I hope the child recovers and I pray for the family of the bus driver that the maniac murdered.

On one hand, #5 wants to know what happened: did the FBI just get tired of waiting, or did the FBI "go barging in" because the situation was deteriorating?

On the other hand, #24 claims to know very well what happened. One has to wonder what was learned in the intervening time, and what was learned, and how it was learned.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist.

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000.

We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
